GNN is proud to feature a guest video from one of our favorite up-and-coming political bands, Clarity
. Their song "Steal
" is an anthem for a generation sick and tired of being ruled by criminals. In the tracks final blistering verse, frontman Michael Kane
breaks into a rapid-fire account of the allegations that the CIA aided the importation of cocaine into the black communities of Los Angeles during the 1980s. This segment was gleaned from Mike Ruppert's legendary, and tragic, 1999 article "Blacks Targeted by CIA
," in which Ruppert asserts:
"[I]s there a supportable case that the CIA directly intended for African-Americans to receive the cocaine which it knew would be turned into crack cocaine and which it knew would prove so addictive as to destroy entire communities? The answer is absolutely, yes."
Clarity is a progressive hip-hop group combining hip-hop and rock styles. But don't call them "rap metal." Their 2nd CD entitled THIS IS NOT A TEST
is a cultural/political fusion that defies categorization. It features an interview with Sander Hicks
, a hip-hop remix of 9/11 Research Godfather Mike Ruppert
as well as a piece titled "loss & losing," featuring an excerpt of Ahundhati Roy's
historic speech at the Riverside Church in Harlem, NYC.
Clarity is headed by Michael Kane, a self-described social-sculptor working in the tradition of Joseph Beuyes, the artist who declared, "Everyone is an Artist." Michael is a frequent contributor to From the Wilderness, and has had articles published by Global Research
, Global Free Press
, as well as GNN.tv
. He is an associate producer for Shadow Government TV, the production team who produced "BUSH KNEW
," which was a finalist in Move On's "Bush in 30 Seconds" Ad contest. SGTV has just completed their documentary DVD entitled "Osama Is A Bush."
